  • 1 can Coopers Lager™
  • 1 can Morgans Caramalt™
  • 1 kg dextrose
  • Cascade Bohemian Yeast™

Day 1: SG 1045

Day 10: SG 1012

Day 17: SG 101

Bottled into 30 x 750 ml PET bottles with 7 g priming sugar per bottle.


Six weeks after bottling and being tasted by a colleague who proclaimed “I don’t like homebrew” it rated a “bloody fantastic”.

Definitely more of a cooler climate brew – the caramalt added a wonderful rich finish to it. Another one to be brewed again methinks.

  • 1 can Coopers Cerveza™
  • 1 kg Coopers Light Dry Malt™

Day 1: SG 1040

Day 10: SG 1016 and added 1/2 tsp yeast

Day 15: SG 1015 added finings

Day 16: Bottled 30 x 750 ml PET bottles, 7 g priming sugar per bottle


Day 32: Nice flavour but not very fizzy

Two months later it was crystal clear and tasted wonderful. V. fizzy. Perhaps the cooler climate (Southern Hemisphere Autumn) meant we should bottle condition for longer.
